Cloth Toilet Paper?
A dry scratchy irritating piece of rashy paper that leaves lint… yuck! Or an organic moist wipe that leaves you CLEAN and saves the planet each wipe… starting to warm up to the concept?
What about poo? Do you think that wiping yourself after you nr.2 is going to leave a bunch of poo on the wipe? No, it doesn’t, and if it for some odd reason would, add more fiber to your diet and wash the cloth in the sink before putting it into your laundry bucket (a bucket where you collect the wipes so that you can wash them alone on a sanitizing cycle).
I take a container, fold in cloth wipes, then pour on a solution of water, organic tree tree essential oil and organic aloe vera liquid. The wipes soak up the liquid nicely and I have fresh moist healthy wipes to really clean down there, once you do it, you won’t want to use toilet paper ever again. Hey, beats using your left hand and some water like some people do in other countries. Since the wipes are pre-soaked, they do not smell and I keep them in an open bucket in our bathroom until I wash them on a sanitizing cycle with a few “Maggie’s Soap Nuts”. They come out so clean and nice that I sometimes grab one to wipe my face while I’m in the bathroom. If it’s good enough for my face, I think it’s good enough for your bottom.
Kind of nice to know that you’ll never run out of TP and are not dependent on any store, plus, did I mention what an enormous thing for the environment this is to do? Listen to this fact: if every household in the U.S. replaced just ONE roll (500 sheets) of virgin-fiber toilet paper with 100 percent recycled TP, we’d save almost half a million trees ! Now imagine how much we could save with NO toilet paper at all…
So you’ll have cleaner privates, save the environment AND a whole lot of money, what’s not to love about cloth TP?
You don’t have to use fancy organic cotton wipes, just cut up some old clothes or sheets (recycle). If you buy new ones, I like organic cotton wipes from Lapsaky and Imse Vimse the best for this use.
